Unfortunately, the flax seeds are too small and pass over the blade without getting passed through the grinder. I used it on the lowest setting and attempted to grind about 4 teaspoons of flax seeds. I tried to turn the grinder on it's side to catch more of the seeds but they fell through the vent in the top.I wish the settings had better labels or explanation, but overall it makes the coffee as fine as I needed it. It DOES take time to grind. It took me about 4-5 minutes of grinding to get several table spoons of coffee, certainly enough for a pitcher. If you only need one or so for a single cup itll be quite quick. Easy to clean, reliable, did not get stuck. Overall you cant do much better for the price.Its really lite weight and flimsy feeling, but it grinds perfect and the small inner container is just right for the single coffee stylee. I count to 60 while grinding coarse and it is just rite to fill the little basket that came with my coffee maker. I have a glass bottom hand grinder at home-- but i think this one grinds better. I think the hand grind ina ceramic burr tastes best -- so I'm happy.It is easy to use and does a good job. There are a few suggestion that I would like to make to the folks that make,this little guy. 1. Increase the size oh the larger jar a bit. 2. Graduated marker on the jar.Coffee are the same color. They. blend in making them hard to. see.Use it everyday for Moka Pot, AeroPress and French Press This is my third grinder. I tried a cheap electric one that I hated. Then I tried the long silver tube one which was cumbersome to twist the adjustment dial. There’s no easy way to measure the grind and keep it consistent from time to time. I love this one! It’s cheap and very useful. You have to baby it to make it last because it is a plastic housing. Burrs are ceramic though. It’s got 4 easy settings. Smallest I use for my Moka Pot, the third largest for my aeropress and largest for my French Press. Consistent and delicious every time.

Make sure you rinse it every time right away.l or else it will get gunked up. We’ll see about the longevity of it but I think if it’s taken care of, it should last awhile!In order to navigate out of this carousel please use your heading shortcut key to navigate to the next or previous heading.

They're both identical except the ceramic grinder. The Hario that's grey works great. The clone that's white can't even grind - it'll only crush. If you get one with the white ceramic, get rid of it.I was using the JavaPresse before the Skerton, which is a lot cheaper. I decided to try the Skerton hoping it would be lower effort. I found the JavaPresse slippery and over time was worried I was hurting my wrists. The Skerton seemed much better at first but just like the JavaPresse as it wore it’s internal parts it becomes more and more difficult to crank and the grind consistency started to get worse. The ceramic burrs are very durable but the plastic parts do wear and the shaft has more play in it after a year. When I first started using the Skerton I was mostly grinding for French Press. I would always have fines in the coffee but figured that was just how French Press was. Later I started using a 3 cup Moka Pot and a Hario V60. Both of these kept the fines out of the coffee but the inconsistency did affect flavor. But the big issue is when using the finer grinding settings particularly with lighter roasts the grinder tends to jam and the physical effort goes way up. I might say the Skerton is better than electric grinders at that price point. The Skerton is absolutely no competition to the new electric grinder, the electric one at that price point produces a much much more consistent grind.At first, like most of the reviewers, I thought it was great. Now, after the fourth cleaning and reassembly, not so much.

The grind adjustment screw loosens during grinding now unless I tighten to the point of very fine as for espresso. I use the pour over which requires a medium grind but, the screw loosens and the grind has chunks. I have to constantly adjust during grinding. I do not recommend this product.If you are looking for a very consistent grind, then I would look elsewhere. This grinder is tough to use on a table because the rubber bottom doesn't do enough to secure it but it is also somewhat awkward to hold if you choose to lift it up while grinding. It has excellent grind speed but that doesn't mean anything to me if the grind is inconsistent, which it is. I bought this as a potential upgrade to my cheaper javapresse. When it arrived, I used a bunch of old beans as a way to calibrate the grind settings to match what I liked from my javapresse. However, I quickly saw that it was less consistent than the cheaper grinder. After brewing some coffee with the hario ground beans, it simply didn't taste as good. I played around with it for a week or two and have not had my mind changed. I am definitely more picky than your average person but if you are looking into hand grinders then you are probably not too dissimilar from me. In my opinion, not worth the money.I love this product. As others have pointed out, it's very well made, as well as easy to use and clean. The thing is, if you're planning on brewing more than a cup at a time, it does take time and frankly can wear you out. I've been using the mill to grind coffee for use in a French Press, which highlights another shortcoming that has been mentioned by many reviewers. That is, when using it to grind coarser coffee (as for a press), the grinds can be inconsistent in size. That seems to be a result of two things: when you loosen the burr enough to produce the larger grinds and then turn the crank, the play in the axle moves the shaft back and forth allowing grinds of different sizes to get through.

The size you need is metric 6 (or M6). When I'm ready to grind the coffee, I put in the beans, put the cover on and attach my cordless drill to the connecting nut. It used to take more than 6 minutes to grind enough coffee for three cups by hand and now it takes no more than 90 seconds. Another benefit of this method is that the constant downward pressure of the drill on the shaft while grinding (as opposed the side to side pull of the crank) results in grinds that are very consistent in size - even when producing a course grind for a French Press. Obviously, don't go full-speed on the drill. A slow and steady speed will do the job and not damage the beans or the grinder. Another tip is to hold the jar in one hand and the drill in the other while grinding rather than putting the jar on a counter.After receiving it I was disappointed. The hole in the stabilizer plate is way too big to actually offer any benefit and the burr rocks back and forth making very inconsistent grinds. I attached two photos where you can see how much the rod can move within the stabilizer plate. I wouldn’t have been upset since the price isn’t very high but frustrating considering it is marketed as improved.It cost more than the other versions Hario produces but corrects the problems that customers complained they had. It is very easy to use, easy to clean and easy to adjust the grinder. I am enjoying the ritual of grinding every morning.It does look like being a durable coffee grinder, I'm very happy with it's built quality, but fails to provide a good grinding consistency.which in my opinion it's the most important aspect of a grinder, otherwise is not fit for purpose. It does have a stabilizing plate, as the manufacturerer says, but it doesn't keep the lower burr centered. The hole in the stabilising plate is slightly larger than the axle of the conical burr so it doesn't keep it stable at all.

When grinding, the conical burr spins in an oval shape inside the fixed burr, rather than circle, which translates in an uneven gap between the two burrs, thus creating the inconsistency in the grind. I'm talking about french press and pour over grinds, but I guess that for expresso it can deliver a good grind. To be honest, I got a better grind from a ?7 grinder, untill it broke, but since I can buy 5 of those with the money I paid for the Skerton Plus, I will return this one. Other than that, if you're not bothered about the grind consistency, I guess you'll be very happy with this grinder. LATER EDIT: I bought a Skerton Plus again as I wanted another hand grinder, but I removed the original stabilizing plate (which, again, is completely useless) and replaced it with a Hario Skerton Upgrade Kit from BlueHorseProducts. I'm very happy with the grinder now, even though I had an extra cost on top, but, in my opinion, this is the only way you can have a good Skerton grinder.Every 10-20 turns of the handle you'll find some beans have got stuck and require an extra 'push' to grind - so it's not a particularly smooth experience and requires a continual, tight grip (you can't just place it on the table and turn). Secondly, the convex bowl at the bottom is pretty awkward to try and scoop coffee out of if you're using a V60 or Aeropress scoop. If you fill the bowl to the top with grinds then it's easy - but if you're just grinding enough for one or two people that would mean leaving a lot of freshly ground coffee just sitting there. There's a cheaper Hario hand-grinder which is easier to turn, easier to remove the grinds from, and even has a little guide to tell you how many portions you've ground. It's definitely superior to this.The grind is consistent and there is no dust (fines) that I would notice. I used to have an electric burr grinder more than twice the price that produced an annoying amount of dust. This is just perfect.

I have now been using it for more than six months and I am still very happy with it. I have given one as a present and they are also quite satisfied. I don't think that the average snob coffee drinker would notice a difference between this grinder and anything else costing hundreds of pounds more. If you are a proper hipster you will obviously spend hundreds of pounds on a grinder, although I would challenge you to tell the difference on a blind test.Avec tous les bons commentaires qu'il y avait sur ce moulin, j'etais etonnee que le mien fasse une mouture si inegale; mais il y avait en fait un probleme. Il a ete echange; depuis la mouture est bien egale. Je pense qu'il va durer dans le temps. Les moins: ? Je deconseillerais ce moulin aux personnes qui doivent changer souvent la taille de mouture du cafe; car le reglage n'est pas evident a reproduire (pas de pre - reglages ni de reperes).I went for this model as I was weary of some of the super-cheap ones (thin metal, stripped threads, etc) but did't want to risk spending a fortune on something fancy and then decide that a manual grinder wasn't for me. This one seemed a good compromise and Hario kit has always worked well for me in the past. First impressions are pretty good. It is fairly weighty and sits on the counter securely and things like the metal for the crank handle are of a good thickness. The shape of the handle and the lid means that you can 'hang' it from the side for storage but it doesn't attach in anyway so no good for transport. The glass at the bottom is essentially a thick walled jam jar. In fact, so much so it has nearly accidentally gone out with the recycling more than once. The rubber on the bottom stops it sliding around when grinding however it is the loosest of fits - basically supports its own weight but is more than happy to slide off.

Issues I have in use: Due to the design the collar that you grip when grinding is pretty large in diameter - provides a decent forearm exercise first thing in the morning which isn't always what you want when you just need coffee. The glass fits into the rubber 'foot' with a ball-and-socket type feel meaning the whole unit rolls about in use. Combine that with the point above and things can feel like harder work than they should be. The grind is very easy to adjust (hold handle whilst rotating the bottom of the grind unit). However, it is both stepped and unmarked. The steps can be annoying if, like me, you find the ideal is between two steps as there aren't many of them. Being unmarked makes it very hard to jump around multiple settings (unless you do things like 'all the way right before 3 clicks left' etc). I tend to use a variety of brew methods but it is annoying enough to chop and change the settings that this now lives on one setting, which leaves it feeling underutilised (really don't want to own a brace of grinders all locked in to one setting each!). All in all, this is a decent machine which I don't regret buying and would overall recommend, but just a few usability issues keep it back from being perfect.In order to navigate out of this carousel please use your heading shortcut key to navigate to the next or previous heading. In this post we’ll take a closer look at some of the best models out there. Asser Christensen Licensed Q Arabica Grader, M.A. Journalism February 17, 2020 A phrase that people who know a thing or two about coffee like to throw around is this: “The grinder is more important than the coffee maker.” And while it sounds a little bit extreme, it’s undoubtedly true. Unfortunately, the best burr coffee grinders tend to be prohibitively expensive. Luckily, manual coffee grinders offer stellar performance at a far lower price point than the typical electric counterparts.

If you want to get the maximum bang for your coffee-allocated buck, going for a hand grinder is a surefire way to do it. I have been using manual grinders for several years, and either owned or tried most of the top models available today. Below you see my current top pick among them all. My top pick: The new Jx-model from 1Zpresso is my favorite hand grinder. I have had this model for half a year, and truly believe that it’s the best buy for most people. The grind consistency is at a professional level, it looks amazing, and it’s a pleasure to use since it’s so speedy compared to all the rivals. See latest price Things to look for in a serious hand grinder. Manual grinders are more simple to buy than normal burr coffee grinders. Why is that? Well, there are just fewer types, technologies, and use-cases, which means there are fewer things to consider altogether. However, there are 3 main considerations: Travel: Go for something smaller and more portable, if you want to bring the grinder on trips. Espresso or filter? Most grinders excel at one thing only, but a few work well for both styles of coffee. Budget: Today, hand grinders are available at all price levels. I’d suggest setting a budget with a bit of leg room.Remember; you get what you pay for. And with hand grinders it can be especially annoying to realize that you should have gone for something better, since you’ll be spending a lot of time grinding in that cranky, pre-caffeinated state. You can achieve a level of consistency similar to commercial grinders with a premium model like the 1Zpresso Jx Of course there are also a various features that you should consider. Don’t listen to the manufacturers and their marketing BS. Let me break down the features for you here, so you know what to go for in a grinder. Ceramic or steel burrs. The burrs are on of the most important aspects of a grinder. All hand grinders have conical burrs. They come in either ceramic or steel. Steel is a LOT sharper (and better).

It’s bother faster and more consistent than ceramic. If you have the budget, I definitely recommend a grinder with steel burrs even though they tend to be more expensive. Handle length: The handle can make or break a hand grinder. If it’s too short, you have to spend a lot more energy grinding the same amount of beans. See the picture below for some different types. Bearings? The premium models usually have bearings, which makes grinding a lot smoother and easier. If you choose a model without bearings, you’ll have to expend a lot of unnecessary energy. Also, if you have smaller hands, you don’t want something that’s difficult to hold. Grind adjustment: This is an important one. Choose a grinder, where you can easily switch back and forth between different settings from French press, filter, and Aeropress. The step-less models can be a pain. The handle’s lenght and shape is worth considering. How long does a manual coffee grinder take. In general, manual coffee grinders take around one minute to grind enough for a big cup. It does take some effort to grind by hand — I’m not going to sugarcoat it. However, flagship models such as the 1Zpresso Jx can grind rather fast. Typically, you’ll be ablt to grind for 2-3 cups in less than 45 seconds. The cheaper entry-level models with ceramic burrs are a lot slower; it will typically take 2-3 minutes to grind 3 scoops of coffee. Keep in mind: The finer you grind, the more times you’ll have to turn the crank. For that reason alone I suggest people who want a grinder for espresso to opt for an electric one. I know the company by chance, as I bumped into their booth at the annual Coffee Expo in Taiwan two years ago. I was instantly mesmerized by how fast and well-crafted their entire line-up of grinders is. The founder of the company, whom I talked to briefly, is Taiwanese, but the production is based in China. Back then, they hadn’t entered the Western market, but now it has finally happened.

The English of 1Zpresso’s sales material isn’t quite up to Oxford standards but don’t let that fool you. It’s not a brand you should underestimate. Jx is my favorite hand grinder I have tried several of the company’s models, also the more expensive ones from the “E” and “K”-range. At its current price point, it’s a steal. It easily beats rival grinders that cost 2-4 times more. The consistency of the grinder is impressive. You can use it for everything from Turkish coffee and espresso to pour over and French press. Because the grinder has big and aggressive 48 mm steel burrs, it’s also an incredibly speedy grinder. It’s a lot faster than any of the other models in this article. You should be able to grind 25 grams of coffee in around 35 seconds. The only drawback to the grinder is that it’s on the larger side, so if you’re traveling a lot and portability is important to you, you should probably consider its smaller sibling; the 1Zpresso Mini Q, which I’ll review below. Also, if your hands are on the smaller side, it might be easier to use the Mini Q as it requires less grip strength. Conclusion Over the last couple of months, I have received several emails and comments on Instagram from readers who have purchased the Jx after reading my review, and they all agree that it’s an epic hand grinder. 1Zpresso Jx looks terrific, and it grinds swift and consistently. It’s my top pick among all hand grinders (and will probably remain so for many years.) For more info, see my full review of 1Zpresso Jx. ( Bonus-info: If you want to use the grinder for espresso, you should opt for the Pro-model, since it has more granular adjustment). For international orders, visit the official 1Zpresso Shop ?? See more reviews 2: 1Zpresso Mini Q Travel Burr Grinder This is the smallest model from 1Zpresso. It’s an ideal companion for the frequent traveller, since it fits inside an Aeropress.

Even though the grinder is tiny it still does a great allround-job, and could be used as an everyday workhorse. (However, I’d recommend most people to get the Jx-model from 1Zpresso instead, since it’s faster and more consistent). Like the other models from the brand, The Mini Q has an aluminum unibody with no room for misalignment while the shaft and burrs are made of stainless steel. The grinding action is helped by two super smooth bearings. In fact, it’s even on par with the much more bulky Lido 3 speedwise. The burr set is made from sharp stainless steel, and it goes through medium roasted beans like a knife through butter. This grinder is suitable for manual brewing but the company doesn’t recommend it for espresso (they have a few bigger models such as the E Pro and the Jx that are more suitable for that). Unique features There’s a bunch of nifty features on the Mini Q. For instance, the wooden handle-knob is magnetic, so it can be taken off for more comfortable transportation. The adjustment is more simple than many of its competitors due to using a numbered adjustment. The main argument for getting the grinder though is that the combination of build quality, size, consistency, usability AND price is just phenomenal. If you want to learn more about the Mini Q then check out my in-depth review here. The Conclusion If portability and quality are your top priorities then go for the Mini Q. It’s built to last, compact, and capable of grinding very well. The only slight drawback is that the capacity of the hopper is maximum at 24 grams of light roasted beans. If that’s no concern, then I highly recommend this grinder. For international orders, visit the official 1Zpresso Shop ?? See more reviews 3: Porlex Mini Portable Hand Grinder The Porlex Mini has long been one of the most popular travel sized grinders. The Mini is indeed minuscule. But it still manages to produce great coffee. If your primary use case for a manual grinder is traveling, then look no further.

The device is made of stainless steel. Meaning: It’s virtually indestructible. The Porlex has a small set of ceramic burrs that produce a pretty consistent grind at the medium-fine setting and then becomes less and less uniform as it gets coarser. That means that it’s great for pour over or Aeropress, but less so for French press. It does grind fine enough for espresso but expect it to take 2-3 minutes for a dose of 15 grams. Better handle A few years ago a common complaint about the Porlex Mini was that the handle was made of a softer metal than the body. With extensive use that resulted in a loose fit. Luckily the company has listened to the disgruntled customers and made a new and improved handle that will continue to fit snugly on the grinder. Drawbacks This grinder is pretty much the perfect travel companion. You could even use it for your everyday coffee mill at home if you only brew one or two cups at a time. The only drawback is that it’s small and as such takes longer to grind than, for example, the Lido 3 or the 1Zgrinder E-Pro. The Porlex Mini is a classic for a good reason. See more reviews 4: Orphan Espresso Lido 3 Swiss Burr Grinder The Lido 3 manual grinder has been popular in the specialty coffee community for a while now. It’s made by the tiny company Orphan Espresso, which mainly produce various hand grinders as well as espresso accessories. The Lido 3 is a big and bulky grinder. Pictures don’t do it justice. In hand, you can feel how heavy and well-crafted it model is. The irony is that it’s marketed as a travel grinder due to being lighter than its predecessor, the Lido 2. But weighing in a 2 lbs or just above 1 kilo, you’d have to be a hardcore coffee geek to bring it on a trip. Big burrs The Lido 3 sports Swiss made 48 mm conical steel burrs and has an enormous capacity compared to its rivals. It grinds fast enough but in fact, other high-end grinders such as those from 1Zgrinder beats it comfortably when it comes to speed.

The is probably due to the Lido’s shorter handle, and less smooth bearings. However, I have had this grinder for more than a year and have come to notice some severe flaws. The antistatic plastic of the grounds bin is made out of a very soft kind of plastic. Within a year the screw thread had gotten so loose that the jar would no longer fit. It can’t grind fine enough for espresso (I know some people disagree but I have never managed to find a propers setting due to burr rub) Grinders half the size are still faster and more consistent. Conclusion: The Lido 3 is certainly a capable grinder, and its rugged and industrial look makes it stand out from the typical cute hand grinders. But it is not really the engineering masterpiece that it’s been cracked up to be. There are quite a few competitors at the same price point; I’d pick over this. See the full review of Lido 3 here See more reviews 5: Hario Skerton Pro Ceramic Burr Hand Mill Hario Skerton is one of the most iconic hand grinders. This is the new and improved “pro” version of the classic model. In many ways, Hario is synonymous with the third wave movement. The new version, which was released in 2017, however, has upped its game significantly. These burrs have less wobble than the old ones due to improved construction, and as a bonus it’s way easier to adjust the grind now. Being able to tweak the grind setting easily is really an essential factor when it comes to the user experience. That makes it easy to reproduce a particular grind. The old Skerton used a step-less system, which made it a pain to go back and find a previous setting. Better handle Another nice feature on the upgraded “Pro” is the new handle. Before the handle was somewhat flimsy and a little on the short side. The new handle gives you a nice solid feeling when grinding and uses the force better. Simple laws of physics right there. The Skerton Pro has the general Hario aesthetics, which means understated, beautiful and soft.
